Subsource

german netlabel specialising in electronica, soundscapes and cinematic music.

Subsource offers contemporary electronic music in an unconventional form: you can download or stream it directly from the internet for free. You may want to sort Subsource into drawers like experimental electronic music, ambient music, refreshing beats, noise, glitch or something but there are no specific style directions, except perhaps 'ambient music' ... but everything can be ambient music depending on the environment. So Subsource don't want to make a stylized list of its music. Each release was made out of a specific mood and environment and it shows you this environment while you listen to it. Subsource is splitted into two parts: First there are subsource releases called soundscapes. Independent musicians and sound artists ('subsource scientists') are releasing their albums and EPs in this section. Then there are instant DJ Sets or submixes. You will find a great collection of DJ Sets on subsource playing only free music. Compiled and mixed by Digital Jockes using software instead of turn tables. These sets may give you an overview about (free) electronic music or they are simply made for awake, dance or sleep with. Subsource is now located in Nürnberg / Germany and is managed by Dirk Murschall aka [in]anace since 1999. Website: www.subsource.de

[sub001 - sub030] Various Artists : Works Since The Beginning Of Subsource Power stations, old, deserted factories, sinister looking cities and strange sounds fading in the distance. The music is telling you stories, which for reasons unknown to you are circling around them. Subsource is characterized by strong urban feelings the producers don't really knowthemselves, but strongly long for. The music comes into being sporadically and irregularly. The pieces usually emerge in a very short space...

Inconnu, which stands for "unknown" in french, is conceptually based around the idea of finding and exploiting the unknown beauty in the chaos of nature. One major interpretive theme is that of the microscopic, macroscopic, and melancholic world in which we are connected to holistically. That idea was expressed through the use of random molecule-esque sounds bits layered underneath turbulent, looming dubbed-out melodies flowing about a motion of beat (which in my mind reflects the...

Contrast, Zen Sauvage's follow up to his debut Subsource release, Inconnu, is a solid body of musical architecture based off the idea of various oppositional mediums in effect throughout our realities and world. This album skirts the boundaries of anti-pop and presents itself as a rare experiment into the ever-increasing underground realm of techno-sculpturalism. Through the adept manipulation of countless audio design tools coupled with various acoustic instruments played by the artist...

There is so much music possible. There are techniques to make every inconceivably tone listenable. When you are deep into electronic music you get an enormous input of music that is created in a strange and exotic way. Through the years i taught myself to understand avant garde and pop music (!) as well and it was not easy sometimes. After all the human voice is the most beautiful and changeable sound machine i known and it is always a pleasure to listen to voices of people who have a nice...

In its way, it turns tapering upward, and at last spherical. It is whitish, with an eye of blue, as bright as the sun in a clear day. In these imperceptible atmospheres it seems to move twenty degrees, and to go out as much above the horizon. Federico Montis works are following the aesthetics of lowercase and microsound. He uses diverse sound applications and techniques to create a balance between extreme frequencies, tonal textures and clean glitches. Sometimes hidden just beneath the surface...

"It is as if below normal happy life, there still is this lingering feeling of unease, a sort of undertow that is both dangerous and tempting at the same time. You'd like to surrender to it, but it will only draw you down to deeper, darker parts. Basically, this music is the soundtrack to that feeling."

This Subsource release is a piece of musical archeology. Recorded in the winter of 1988/1989, it is actually proto-electronic music. The 'samplers' used were looped cassette tapes, and the recording process involved a lot of dubbing, hence the otherworldly sound quality. The tracks 'Fire' and 'Water' were part of a project which aimed at reconstructing a kind of 'all-world' folk music for a fictional nation called 'Pangea'. Apart from fragments of folk music, the following sounds and...

I would have done more tracks, but these pieces were kind of the end of what i was trying to say here. Even though the styles may vary a bit, the theme and feel comes from the same source. It's that feeling you get when it's too beautiful to go outside, or when you have an abnormal amount of love for someone and decide to dodge everything so that you may avoid the consequences of rising too high too quickly or becoming too happy too fast.
